      Never send any money to another advertiser abroad for 'travelling expenses' to meet her/him somewhere !

    Our Swiss male reader Franco sent US$ 850 to a university teacher Alena in BELARUS after 3½ years of correspondence, Alena just stole the money but never travelled anywhere to meet him as promised.

    This kind of mail fraud is a serious CRIME and it should be reported immediately to your local police authorities and Interpol to protect the other readers from getting swindled.
